Serving the commune of Champigny-sur-Marne, the high schools Louise Michel and Langevin-Wallon are both located in a meander of the Marne river along its east-west axis. The aim of the project is to enhance the image of the two facilities, improve their attractiveness and actively participate in the urban renewal process, which has already begun with the creation of the new Grand Paris station, located a few hundred meters away on Avenue Roger Salengro.
While having specific identities, the two high schools are developing common urban and architectural themes, favourising transparency, circulation and communication. Beyond the reconnection to the city, the spatial sequence and spaces of exchange aspire to a greater, porosity and generosity.
The schools are also developing an integrated environmental approach, carried out within the framework of an environmental quality approach with low energy consumption objectives. With an appropriate phasing strategy, the works are being carried out without compromising the safety and the continuous functioning of the establishments.
